Contenuto: This is the second volume illustrating the findings of the research among the refugees from Istria-Dalmatia-Rijeka and their descendants; the previous volume reported the results of the fieldwork among the refugees displaced at the time in Italy; here the subject are those who resumed their lives abroad, in Argentina and Canada.
Results and analysis build up on interviews with the members of the two communities, following an outline that leads to exploring the themes of the remembrances of the exodus, the places of memory and of past everyday life, the childhood language and dialect, the identity dispersed and transmitted to the subsequent generations.
The concluding chapter performs a comparative analysis of the three communities of refugees – in Italy, Canada, Argentina – and develops some hypotheses about the possible future of the identity and membership feelings among the refugees.
